How on Earth did I miss seeing that article about the Muggles, and the glossary of terms?! It's delightful! Thanks for posting, Joe!
Good luck, fellow Muggles! I'm happy to give nudges, but only if you're still stuck on Sunday. Just send me a PM and tell me what you've tried so far.

Though I’m a PAPER (& online) WSJ subscriber, I never saw that article either. I joined just weeks after that date. Glad to have this article to shove at people who don’t get what a Muggle is even after I explain it. (Article doesn’t mention our zoom meetings… was that started after it came out?)
The other Wendy. :roll:
